Thanksgiving Blessing Snack Mix

I have been a great fan of Organized Christmas for years and ran across this recipe for a great - and meaningful - holiday snack mix that I had saved on my computer back in '02. Why don't you mix some up as favors for each of your Thanksgiving guests and be sure to pop by and visit this site for some other great holiday ideas, printables, recipes, tips and much more! They even have several printable tags already made for ya! How great is that?

Here's the mix.

Bugles: Shaped like a cornucopia, it's a symbol of our nation's abundance.

Pretzels: Arms folded in prayer, a freedom sought by those who founded our country.

Candy corn: Sacrifices of the Pilgrims' first winter. Food was so scarce that settlers survived on just a few kernels of corn a day.

Nuts or seeds: Promise of a a future harvest, one we will reap only if seeds are planted and tended with diligence.

Dried fruits: Harvest gifts of our bountiful land.

M&Ms: Memories of those who came before us to guide us to a blessed future.

Hershey's Kiss: The love of family and friends that sweetens our lives.

Add some of your own conversation starters to the treat bag to get the dinner conversation going!
